My brothers wife works at Chase. And I got some interesting scoop, the banks are gonna increase interest rates and fees to cover this new obama bank tax. They had some discussions about this. So instead of obama taxing the bonuses of the big dawgs who worked in tarp recipient institutions 50% like the UK did. Obama chose to steathly, socialises losses again and privatize gains one more time. Taxing the bonuses would make it difficult for banks to pass that down since it is an individual special assessment. It hurts the big fat lobbyists By doing this special bank tax to "Stick it to the big banks and make the idiot voters happy and feel like he is working for them and not lobbiests" he creates a stealth tax that lets banks pass this tax to the americans via fees or extra interest yet privatize the gains via fat bonuses that were generated thanks to tarp. It is a three card monty game. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lemon_socialism Robert Bernard Reich"We have Socialism for the Rich, and Capitalism for everyone else."
